Graduate Admissions

Expected Academic Standard

Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK High II.i Honours Degree.

If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.

Applicants should normally hold at least a high upper second-class degree from a UK University (usually 67 per cent) or international equivalent as set by the University's Graduate Admissions Office (see the International Qualifications page on the Graduate Admissions website).

Please be aware that this is the minimum criterion for academic results, and that attaining this minimum does not assure admission to the MPhil. Admissions are fiercely competitive and students who simply meet the minimum standard are often not accepted onto the MPhil.

Candidates will normally be expected to have taken a substantial number of history courses at the university level and to have a sound background in the period covered by the course. Most applicants are completing or have completed degrees in history or a cognate discipline, such as English or politics.
